    A powerful portrait that speaks of the sport and the brave women who pursue it. AND it's a decisive moment for you who like the work of Henri Cartier Bresson who wrote of this idea. This photographer has series about boxing and every photograph goes beyond the action and right into the heart of who these people are who have the courage and drive to enter the ring. It's tough to look at and it's so well done and perfect in the story it tells.
